The Auburn Tigers (5-4, 2-4 SEC) will be looking to pick up their third straight win this weekend against the Arkansas Razorbacks (3-6, 1-5 SEC) on the road in Fayetteville.
Auburn has generated momentum after dropping four games in a row to begin conference play. Arkansas also has some momentum after pulling off a 39-36 upset win over the Florida Gators on the road in Gainesville last week.
Auburn is one win away from bowl eligibility. Picking up a win this weekend will go a long way toward determining how this season is remembered.
What are the four biggest questions surrounding the game?
How will Auburn handle KJ Jefferson?
Arkansas has one of the best quarterbacks in the SEC in KJ Jefferson.
Jefferson is a 6-foot-3, 247-pound athlete who is difficult to bring down and is capable of extending plays.
Jefferson has gone 163-250 for 1,802 yards and 16 touchdowns this season. He is also the Razorbacks' leading rusher with 292 yards and two touchdowns off of 129 carries.
Stopping Jefferson will be a challenge, but if Auburn can do it, it will be in a good position to win the game.
Will Auburn's pass rush continue its recent success?
Auburn got off to a slow start from a pass rush standpoint, but the Tigers have stepped up lately.
Marcus Harris has led the way for Auburn when it comes to pressuring the quarterback. Keldric Faulk and Jalen McLeod have pulled their weight as well.
If Jefferson does not have time to get rid of the ball, Auburn will gain bowl eligibility before leaving Fayetteville.
Will Jarquez Hunter have another stellar performance?
Auburn running back Jarquez Hunter has found his stride.
He has rushed for more than 140 yards in back-to-back games and 91 the game before that. He also has four touchdowns in the last three games.
Arkansas' run defense is not one of the better ones Auburn will face this season, so Hunter could be in a position to go off again.
Who is the biggest threat on Arkansas' offense other than Jefferson?
Arkansas wide receiver Andrew Armstrong is a guy Auburn will be paying close attention to.
Armstrong leads the Razorbacks in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns with 46, 623 and four, respectively.
If Auburn can keep Armstrong covered, Jefferson will have to work even harder.
Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. CT, and the broadcast can be found on SEC Network.
